Rob Williams: Zero Prostate Cancer Run/Walk

For the last few years, I have helped out at the Zero Prostate Cancer Run/Walk.

This past weekend I did it again, hosting the survivor’s breakfast and helping with emcee duties. I really like this event especially meeting the survivors. Many come up telling me a number like “4” or “10.”  It’s the number of years, they’ve been cancer free. 

The event part of a nation-wide event held in more than 20 cities.  The Urology Group hosting the event locally quickly growing it to the second largest in the country.  Unlike women, we men don’t often talk about our health. 

Do you know the color of prostate cancer?  Probably not.  We all do know the color of breast cancer though: pink.  Prostate cancer is light blue by the way. 

This event helps to raise prostate cancer awareness.  It also raises money too. 

The urology group sometimes offers free screening.  Prostate cancer very treatable if found early enough.  2.8 million American men are living with prostate cancer today.  The run/walk at The Urology Group helping to change that. 

Be a part of the change next year. Also, make sure you or the men in your life get screened for prostate cancer.
